Lion Sands 1933 Lodge
All four of the elegant suites are air-conditioned and have ceiling fans so that you’ll stay as cool as a cucumber! There is even a children’s dormitory that can host eight children if you want some peace and quiet to yourselves and there’s also a connected bedroom available for an au-pair.
The main lodge is a great place to kick back and put your feet up with natural fibres, oversized chairs and an open fireplace creating a relaxing yet elegant environment. The bathrooms are just as inviting, courtesy of their double vanity units, elegant bath and outdoor showers. The lodge’s large windows, sliding doors and muted colours mirror the surrounding landscape and create a seamless, indoor-outdoor flow. Timber, thatch and screed flooring add earthy charm to the interior, where the décor is classic-contemporary.
The kitchen is ideal as it opens onto a dining area that’s equally suited to informal family meals or a banquet affair. All of these public areas open onto a large, wraparound wooden deck and 13.5m (15 yard) lap-size swimming pool. If this sounds like your dream home, that’s exactly what 1933 at Lion Sands strives to be: a gracious home away from home – with a few added luxuries, including your own private chef and ranger, with the exclusive use of a 4x4 Land Rover for safari game drives. Safaris in Sabi Sand Game Reserve are among the best in Africa with a great abundance and diversity of predators, plains game and birds.
